This event follows a fast flat course, great for new runners and those looking for a half marathon PB. Starting and finishing close to Ipswich Town’s Portman Road stadium, runners pass the prestigious Willis building designed by Lord Foster before heading down to Ipswich’s vibrant waterfront. The route then passes Felaw Maltings on the way out and back along Wherstead Road, where particpants will see Fox’s Marina, Suffolk Food Hall and go twice under the iconic Orwell Bridge into Freston. On returning to the town centre, runners will pass over the Wet Dock lock gates and continue along the waterfront for a second time, before returning to the finish line located on Sir Alf Ramsey Way.
Please note – this course is provisional and subject to change
